In order to eliminate oppression and evil in our society, I think that we first need to define the root cause.
Is it so difficult for us (and others) to accept that there may be more than just this limited world?
Why do some people not accept the truth, even when it is clear to others?
Not every saying is worth repeating, and sometimes what sounds good is more style than substance.
Have you ever felt like you were stuck behind layers of curtains, trying to find your way out?
When our view is distorted and clouded, how do we gauge what is straight and what is crooked?
In a world full of contradictory information, how can we sort out the truth from the noise?
Sometimes, just as with our eating habits, we need something more satisfying than a "snack-size" portion of God's Word.
Searching for truth can be an uphill battle, but an ancient traveling speaker had some insight that is still good for us today.
If we are genuinely interested in learning the truth, we have an opportunity to find it, if we will only look.
When we study what others have written or said, we should understand where they are coming from, and be able to determine if they are telling us the truth.
